That early Rising Sun case is amazing! It's the grand daddy of the cases we now associate with Japanese awards.

Thanks for sharing these amazing images. Can't wait to see his Imperial Russian awards. He would have received some exquisite bling.

Russian order. Identify please (I think I know it but don't want to reveal my ignorance if I am wrong.)

Atheists and pagans got their own? Cool! As one of the former, I appreciate the special treatment. (Unless the non-Christian one was of inferior quality...)

Thanks Nick.

Interesting that 'Anne' is written in kanji

All imperial Russian orders had two versions "for Christians" and ”for non-Christians".

The only difference between these two is central tablet.

That's how normal "for Christians" version of St.Anna looks like

Sorry Rich, no special treatment for pagans.

They will be classified as non-Christians :)
